Large-scale Sprinklered Fire Test of 20 Ah Lithium-ion Polymer Pouch Batteries in Warehouse Storage
TEST VIDEO (2 of 2): Large-scale Sprinklered Fire Test of Lithium-ion 20 Ah Polymer Pouch Batteries FM Global has conducted research on lithium-ion batteries in an industry collaboration with the Property Insurance Research Group through the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Fire Protection Research Foundation. All testing was conducted at the FM Global Research Campus in Rhode Island, USA 2015 and 2016. Lithium-ion 20 Ah Polymer Pouch Batteries:
This large-scale fire test was conducted to determine ceiling sprinkler protection guidance for storage of lithium-ion batteries in a warehouse setting. The test array represents rack storage of 15 ft high under a 40 ft high ceiling and contains 26,880 batteries (24 pallet loads). The successful performance of the sprinkler system has confirmed a sprinkler protection design that can be applied to a range of lithium-ion batteries in bulk storage.
